Sow in spring in a good seed compost just covering the seed with compost. Make sure the compost is moist but not wet and seal inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 21-30 days at 18-20C (65-70F). The seed can also be sown between April and June where it is to flower and covered to a depth of 1.5mm (1/16in) and thinned out to 30cm (12in) apart.

Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into boxes, spacing them 5cm (2in) apart. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days and plant out in late spring 30cm (12in) apart in full sun and ordinary well drained garden soil.

They are ideal for poor soil, especially chalky or limey soils.
